'Difficult' to vet one-way permits
(02-07 17:21)

The Security Secretary, Lai Tung-kwok, says the arrangements for mainlanders moving to Hong Kong to join relatives have proved affective, and could not easily be changed.
Lai was responding to calls from legislators for the SAR to take part in vetting applications. Currently, only mainland authorities decide who can settle locally under the one-way permit scheme.
Civic Party legislator, Kenneth Chan, said that the system should be changed. --RTHK
